You Never Forget Your First

     As we near another new year – and with it so many new changes – we can’t help but be a little nostalgic for how far we have come. In July of 2018, Simply Blush Bridal opened its doors, and Amy & Tracy thought that if they just sold 100 dresses, this crazy idea might just work. 

Our First “Yes”

     On July 25th, our first bride said “Yes” to her dream dress. At the time, there was a brief moment of panic as we looked at one another with “Okay, now what?” running through our minds. We were flying by the seat of our pants as we scrambled to figure out our computer system – which none of us knew how to operate at the time. The patience and grace were greatly appreciated that day! That first bride and her family put so much faith in us, and we thank God everyday that they did.

     We scrolled through our Instagram feed to find her and check in to see what she has been up to since that fateful day three and a half years ago. 


Look at our first little “I Said Yes!” sign!

     Olivia Hopkins came in with an entire entourage (including a puppy in a purse!), and said “Yes!” to a gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown. On September 29th, 2018 in her sister’s sprawling front yard in Middlesex, NC, she said “I Do!” to her handsome husband, Logan Craft. Fast Forward to 2019, Logan and Olivia purchased 35 acres of land in Bailey, NC where they plan to build their dream home and continue breeding Goldendoodles & Maltipoos. Olivia’s sister, Valerie, (who was also a Simply Blush Bride!) purchased 7 of their 35 acres for her own dream home build.

     In 2021, Logan & Olivia welcomed their gorgeous baby girl, Addilyn Mae, and they are loving growing their little family. 










     Thank You!

     Olivia, we are so thankful that you trusted us and put your faith in us that day in 2018. All of our SBB brides are incredibly special to us, but you will forever hold a place in our hearts as our first ever bride. We can’t wait to watch your family continue to grow, and we embrace the knowledge that we had just a small hand in your story.
